Yun took me to the famous opera house in Milan. La Scala. Everyone has
probably seen pictures of it. We didn't see an opera though. There was a
classical music concert instead. Before we went Yun asked a favor of me. She
said parts of the concert were very quiet movements and could I refrain from
crosshatching through the whole thing. She said I had bothered everyone in
Salzberg, which may have been true. I was surprised we were in one of the
boxes at La Scala. It seemed to have muffled the sound of my sketching
because I drew through a lot of the show and Yun said she never heard me at
Yesterday there was an article about me on the front page of Italy's leading newspaper, La Repubblica. A lot of people have asked if I know what they wrote about me because it is only in Italian. So I did a word translation in an apple program and this is what it said."There are artists for which many words cannot be spold alone perche persentano. This and one cases in issue.

However enough to consult its situated one and to scopire on behalf of who it has lend its work. The rivisitazione of "the it's America and one lesson for all."
I don't know what it means but I love it.
